Bermuda Fun Golf

“You’re going down.” I met my competitor’s gaze and stared intently into his eyes. My fierce expression of determination would surely intimidate any opponent. There was no material gain or prize on the line. It was all for the triumph of succeeding, the glory of winning, and the honor of being declared the champion. Losing was not an option. After carefully studying my surroundings, I was adamant that I would be victorious at a round of miniature golf at Bermuda Fun Golf.

Alright, so maybe I’m being a little bit dramatic. But, Bermuda Fun Golf isn’t any typical mini golf course. After all, it’s the best mini golf in the world, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. You won’t see any windmills here. While you still play with putters, each of the eighteen holes is modeled after a famous one from either Bermuda, the United States, or Scotland. You will see small scale versions of holes from Pebble Beach, Augusta, Glen Eagles, and St. Andrews. Watch out, as you’ll be faced with sand traps, hazards, and ponds on your journey.

Awesome Mini Golf Modeled After Famous Courses

You’ll find Bermuda Fun Golf right on the waterfront at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Sandys Parish. It only makes sense that the best mini golf course in the world comes with an epic view of the ocean. You can also catch a glimpse of the fortification walls that overlook the sea.

Bermuda Fun Golf was designed by Hogan Lindgren who designed similar golf courses in Denmark and Sweden. While these may be the best mini golf courses in the world, Lindgren thinks that this one in Bermuda is the top one yet. It was two years in the making, and the final result was worth the wait. Lindgren based this putt putt course on the holes from real golf courses around the world: six from Bermuda, six from the USA, and six from Scotland.

Our Experiences at the Best Mini Golf in the World

This fun mini golf course was unlike any that we’ve played before. It’s more difficult than it looks! While the bunkers weren’t actually filled with sand, these spots differed from the regular astro turf on the green. When your golf ball ended up in one of these hazards, it was tougher to hit it out of there.

I also had the tendency to hit the golf ball too hard, which sent it flying into the rough. Some of the holes had more difficult bunkers where you would be forced to hit the ball backwards in order to get it back on the green. While it was definitely challenging, I did manage to get a hole-in-one at one point during the game.

After we played through all 18 holes, we tallied up the scores. Though I was playing really well in the first half, Justin gained momentum later in the game as my golf ball seemed to keep landing in those nasty sand traps. He ended up winning, but only by three. It was a really good game and the attraction surely lived up to its name – we had tons of fun!

One of the best places to stay in Bermuda is the five star Hamilton Princess and Beach Club in Hamilton, Bermuda. Our stay here was impeccable: the staff go above and beyond, there are amazing restaurants, and the infinity pool is so dreamy. Every suite has a balcony showcasing beautiful views. The rooms are elegant, modern, and comfortable. The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club is close to the town of Hamilton, meaning that you can easily walk right downtown to Front Street. Basically, this hotel has got it all!

    Mini golf is really fun, I setup a mini golf court in my home it costs me around $1000 but I’m happy that I can pass my free time by playing golf in my home. My wife also love to play with me she isn’t professional golf player but to pass my time she is great.

    Thanks for your post.

    You captured some great shots! The view is absolutely amazing! I honestly hate those pesky bumpers lol! The course already looks difficult even if they weren’t there. I’d love to try it out for myself.

    Wow, I had no idea this mini-golf existed in Bermuda. My wife and I stayed at the Fairmont Southampton about 5 years ago and enjoyed playing their executive course. I wish we had known about this mini golf though as we always enjoy going to Myrtle Beach SC and playing all of those mini-golf courses. This one looks incredible. Thanks for sharing.

    There is a course very much like this – minus the beautiful ocean views – at Walt Disney World in Orlando.

    I love mini golf! This looks like a really cool course and a really pretty setting, but I have a soft spot for obstacles, lol :) Sounds like a great day!

    That is a very impressive mini golf course and I can see why it’s considered the best just for the views alone. I know nothing about gold but I know my husband would enjoy this. We were in Bermuda a few years ago and missed this one. Beautiful photos!

    Ah I always love reading about other travelers experiences with my ultimate passion – golf! Of course, I love to play the ‘real’ courses but mini golf is always a blast and Heather and I generally have pretty good competition. This looks like an AWESOME course and I love how the holes are replicas of the real holes in the world of golf.

    Mini golf is one of the few sports I’m good at (can you call it a sport?) I’d love to play on such a beautiful course. What a view!

    There is nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition or wanting to win – I think I would be exactly the same. Although seeing the course I don’t think I would be in with any chance of winning especially as it looks far more complicated than any I have attempted before. I think I would probably be better off watching from afar, enjoying the views from the Caddy Shack!

    Wow! What a mini golf course, and more importantly – what a view!! I like that this mini golf course doesn’t have the cheesy kiddie windmills and stuff. It really is like a mini version of real world-famous courses. Now, that’s golfing I can get behind. And congrats on the hole-in-one!
